Jenny Ackland, Dip.Tchg (Primary), B.Ed, M.Ed, RSA Certificate in TEFLA.
With three teenage children who keep her busy and informed about contemporary issues facing young people, Jenny Ackland first started teaching in the late ‘80s. She is experienced across a broad range of educational domains, (including education for young people with disability, and teaching English as a foreign language to children, adults and corporate workers in Japan and Melbourne).
While gaining a Postgraduate qualification and Master Degree from the University of Melbourne, Jenny explored the topic of cultural diversity and wrote her research thesis on the intersection of culture, language and identity. Jenny has lived in Osaka, Japan and various cities in Turkey, and so has a solid foundation in working across diverse environments.
In the last few years, Jenny has worked in sexuality and relationships education at Family Planning Victoria. She is a strong believer in social justice for all and is determined to deliver quality educational programs which ensure equity of access for young people so that they can get the information they need, when they need it. She believes better health and wellbeing is based on knowledge, and that sex ed needs to go beyond biology into the more complex areas of relationships and decision making.
